It's time to bathe our ears in an atmospheric river of new local releases, as we wave goodbye to the blustery first official week of Te Marama Puoro o Aotearoa / NZ Music Month 2023. Revisit this's week's coverage of Jazmine Mary, Dictaphone Blues, DONK DOBBO, Synthetic Children, Tom Verberne and [Allophones], then scroll downwards for more top fresh material from deepState, Ingrid and the Ministers, Bleeding Star, Total Violation, Kédu Carlö, impress and Pocket Money.

Gifting us the gloriously high energy debut album from DONK DOBBO earlier this week, Canterbury's The Big Fresh Collective today provided a sneak peek at their forthcoming Footmahi 2023 compilation — sharing uplifting breakbeat-drive club heater 'SO TRUE' by Tāmaki Makaurau's deepState. Get tickets for next week's compilation launch party at Ōtautahi's FLUX on 12th May right HERE.


Casually released into the world a couple of weeks back following last summer's nationwide tour, BOOFHEAD is the second album from Pōneke's high energy rockin' foursome Ingrid and the Ministers, aka Ingrid Saker, Seamus Johnson (Sea Mouse), Scott Maynard and Kim Andrews — cramming in red hot earlier singles 'Porcelain God', 'Broken Leaves', 'Bowie', 'Last Night I Dreamt That I Shot Myself' and the title track with three newies.

Having strutted their stuff at The Others Way festival late last year, Pōneke's Bleeding Star (named after the classic JPSE record) this week unveiled their fuzz-drenched debut album Dropper — you can nab the vinyl LP edition and / or retro-futuristic compact disc version via the Bandcamp link.

Pōneke thrash no-goodniks Total Violation busted out a diabolical new two track release via Aotearoa ruckus punk imprint Razored Raw — mind-bending Homeric homage 'Mr. Plow' and the ruthlessly unrelenting B-side 'Out of the Grave / Total Violation (Live In Studio)'. Get the limited edition pro-dubbed cassette now via the Bandcamp link or lose big time.

Soon to be relocating to Australia, Tāmaki Makaurau electronic duo Kédu Carlö aka Jess Penson and Carly Gill channel body-moving energy into their eleven track debut album / dancefloor odyssey Space Girl Finds Cash.

Aotearoa ambient producer impress dropped debut six track DJ Thank U So Much (edits) as a texturally alluring birthday gift for listeners — "edits and combos and reworks from the past 2 years. they are burning a hole in the hard drive".

Tāmaki Makaurau's Pocket Money shared a video showcasing a full set of material by the trio of Chris Marshall, Kathleen Tomacruz and Chris Townsend, filmed Live at Home within the cosiness of their own lounge.
